It seems a perfect balance to the front end of the 7 series with a great mixture of agression, sport and style/class. Love it!

[quote=JayKay335i;5390811]Reminds me of the lexus LS. I dont like it. Its a shame to call it an M.



its not a M. Its a Msport package. That car is not called a M7. its 740 or whatever. Its just a body kit and wheels package. maybe they beef up the suspension a bit? But i think alot of people confuse M Sport and a M car. If that was a M7 and theres many things that would need to change. More aggressive rims and looks. A lowered and alot stiffer suspension. A engine that makes well over 500hp for that size vehicle. I dunno but you have to remember the people on this post are kind of a minority. BMW im sure sells millions of vehicles a year world wide, and theres a few thousand people on this post. We're the minority guys.

P.s. - I like the matte black trim, and carbon and etc myself. But i dont expect the car to come like that from BMW

You guys forget that people like us that Mod our cars are a minority. People who drive the 7 series are usually 40+ year old executives, doctors, business owners who want a nice luxurious car. Theyre not trying to make it look like a 20 yr old is driving it
I'm bitching about the chrome and have an '08 750 too.

It would be acceptable on non-ZMP cars, but ZMP is supposed to make it look sportier and more aggressive. Aside from the chrome on the rear, it looks awesome - I could live with it on the front.

Love the Carbon Black too.

I will reserve comments until we get better pics or I see one in person. Maybe the chrome strips look better than we think?

On a bright note, here's a pic of my M5 from a recent Laguna Seca trackday!

Why did they release pictures of a black car... you really can't see a shit. Might as well be the original bodykit as black hides those lines so well.

Since when has m-sport meant more chrome parts and why fit shadowline trim if you on the other hand add chrome to the bumpers?

The car itself is pretty good looking but it seems they've pinched the X5M / X6M alloy wheels and slotted in into the new 7 series sport?

Hmm... if the new biturbo 3.0L diesel with 306hp is the 740d, will we get 340d as well or will the 335d keep its old biturbo 3.0L diesel with 285hp?

Wtf Are They Doing With Chrome??!?! No Leave That To Mercedes And Audi!

The Chrome On The Bumpers Are Waaaay Too Think! Eventually.. I Believe They Will Replace It With Long Led Lights...

But Still.. It's Disgusting...

If It Was A Thin Chrome Strip.. Then Maybe Okay....

Omg

The New 7 Is Hot, Just Get Rid Of The Chrome And U Will Have A Bad Ass Ride In Any Color (with Black Wheels Of Course :-) )
